Prior to joining Blue Access, she was a nationally-recognized environmental attorney in private practice, concentrating on water districts, developers, investors, lenders, energy companies, industrial and paper companies, and chemical manufacturers on water-related disputes, endangered species issues, environmental impact reviews, river sites with contaminated sediments, solid and hazardous waste issues, and sites with contaminated groundwater. Kathy focused on these environmental litigation before federal district and appellate courts across the country, as well as before the U.S. Supreme Court. She has worked on water-related issues across the United States, including Kalamazoo, Colorado, Klamath, and Guadalupe Rivers; the ACT-ACF river systems; the San Gabriel Valley; and numerous lakes, streams, and aquifers.
